9:06am

9:10am
found children with the disorder commonly died due to things like drowning or traffic accidents or other events after bolting from safety. some of the most common places they bolted from were their homes, stores and classrooms. parents say many times the children wanted to run or explore. others say they wanted to return to a place they enjoy or were trying to escape a tense situation. doctors say it highlights a problem that is not only a family concern, but a community wide problem. they're hoping to spread awareness and also to first responders. there's a push for a warning system, kind of like an amber alert system we use now. the goal is to make sure there is an immediate response when a parent reports them missing. >> thank you so much. coming up, the nats still going strong, as the redskins walk off the field without a win. dave?
9:11am
>> yes, tony. been tough sweating for your skins, especially from fed ex field. we'll hear from alexander on that subject. the nationals move a step closer advancing with a huge win in st. louis. we'll recap a busy day in sports. stick around.    when i was younger and... financially stable. we were poor. the mgm casino in michigan. and it changed her life. clerk. way up. insurance... and i make great money. seven will create... twelve thousand jobs. to accountants... and construction workers. place to work with good pay... question seven.
9:12am
9:13am
9:14am
the nats pull off late night dramatics. >> and o's and redskins fall short. >> one out of three. >> is bad. >> 33%. i guess you take it. good to get that one, though. >> very good. very important. >> very important, exactly right. the nats were throwing gonzalez yesterday. without strasburg, you want a win with the ace on the hill. wasn't pretty or easy, but they got the job done. key situation in the 7th
9:15am
inning. matthews comes in. bases deuces. 5-4-3, double play. matthews is pumped up. next inning, tyler moore after that great defensive stand, and here come the nats back. two runs score on the rookie's base hit. get the win, 3-2. will try to make it two in a row today at 4:00. orioles, 2-2 in the 9th. leading off the 9th, martin. a homerun. they score five times in all and beat the orioles 7-2. game two for the birds and yanks tonight back at charm city at 8:00. we know things didn't go well for the redskins yesterday. but everybody is talking about the big hit on rg3. tough to watch. he's a running quarterback. here's my thing on this, and a lot of people are like, he has to get out of bounds.
9:16am
i agree. can't take away his legs. has to get out of bounds to avoid contact. but he needs to run. had zero rushing yards in the first half and zero points. i don't think that's coincidencal. kirk cousins had to come into the game, the other rookie, this one from michigan state. looked great here. down by four in the 4th quarter. 77yards to moss. looks great. cousins later threw two picks at the end of the 4th quarter. and the redskins lose 24-17. now, that's to be expected. this is not. billy cundiff is a veteran. 31-yard field goal here that he pushes wide. at this point, he missed four of his last five kicks. the problem in this kick in particular, it was a momentum shifter. we were both at this game, and you could feel the life get sucked out of fed ex. instead, 10-0 redskins at the half potentially. matt ryan was fired up. came down on the ensuing drive
9:17am
and scored a touchdown. changed the whole complexion of that game. those are the type things you can't have happen. it did happen. shanahan said he'll figure out if he's going to bring in more kickers. i'd be surprised if he didn't. one other thing we have to get to and that is we know about cundiff. but alexander is tired of the redskins losing at home, and i know the fans are tired. here's zo on the frustration that is eight straight home losses. >> redskins nations is probably one of the, or is the best fan base i think in the league. it's very disappointing and embarrassing for us not to be able to win at home and defend our home turf. if we want to get to the playoffs, you have to defend home turf. maybe split away. that's what the good teams do, they win at home. >> you heard the word embarrassment.
9:18am
when i asked him that question, eight straight losses, before i could finish eight, he jumped in. eight straight losses, you have eight home games a year. >> my son has become a big redskins fan. he has yet to see them win. >> that's the point. historic levels of losing at home. can't have that happen. going to try again next week. minnesota comes in. they're hot. we'll find out about rg3 with the concussion tests. he'll have to pass all tests by an independent doctor. probably won't find out truly the results and his status until wednesday or thursday. kirk cousins will probably get rest as the week goes. talked about it last hour, concussions these days, they don't treat them like they did 20 years ago. we're not going to assume he's going to play. we'll wait three or four days and figure this out. kicking situation, that could get revolved earlier rather than later. >> the home loss thing, the
9:19am
fans are great. >> nasty day and they're all out there. >> we're making noise. but, you know, the other team is completing big plays. eventually you start to feel like, we're doing our part. >> here we go again. >> it's not just up to us. >> cannot continually have this happen week in and week out. close games. they're in them, and they have to figure out ways to win. >> i've heard variances on the script. marcus is watching and he goes, redskins are exciting. what's going on? the game has changed. i'm not sure what that piece is. >> no moral victories. we're big boys. have to figure out how to get it done. >> thank you, dave. >> sure. how the first "american idol" is celebrating 10 years in the music business. >> find out what this rocket is carrying to the international space station. first let's check in with holly. >> reporter: it is a perfect morning, tony, for oyster stew.

9:21am
